MAORI LANGUAGE WEEK 2013
Te Wiki o te Reo Maori runs from July 1 to 7.
The week encourages people to ‘‘give the language a go’’ to learn and use more Maori phrases in everyday life.
The theme is ‘Nga ingoa Maori, Maori names’. People are asked to consider correct pronunciation, understand the meaning of place names and use Maori names more often.
